Designed and manufactured in Germany, The KW Variant 3 'inox-line' coilover kit is the ideal accessory for performance-oriented drivers and tuning enthusiasts who demand sportiness on their vehicles. Featuring a stainless steel damper body, the KW Variant 3 has “TVR-A” and “TVC-A” damper technology that is separately adjustable in rebound and compression to allow for an extensive damper setup. So it is easy to directly influence the steering behavior, directional stability, tire grip and handling characteristics for safe controllability on the limit.
With compression and rebound stage damping, that can be set separately and independently of each other, the damper setup can be customised to your personal driving preferences or vehicle changes such as weight, tire characteristics, or altered vehicle rigidity. This allows the compression damping force to be increased for more grip from the tyres, to improve cornering behavior and reduce squat without simultaneously altering the rebound stage damping which is optimally matched to the spring rate – a scenario which results in reduced grip and the associated loss of performance.
